Gender Equality and Social Inclusion
We recognize that leprosy affects women, men, girls and boys in different ways. For example women are under diagnosed compared to men. We are committed to investigating, understanding and responding to the gender dynamics and to promoting gender equity.
TLMN has an equity focused and gender responsive disaggregated data collection system, project intervention and evaluation process. Staff are trained in understanding vulnerabilities, needs and issues of girls and women and people with disability.
